December is not only about Christmas and Nutcraker, it is also about SVOD!
SVOD is a leading conference for cool startups, successful entrepreneurs, angel investors and top venture capitalists from all over the world, held in the heart of the warm and sunny Silicon Valley – the center of it all!
Since its inception in 2005, SVOD hosts an eclectic mix of the most creative, forward-thinking, and insightful people in the entrepreneurial and investment world as speakers and investor judges of SVOD startup DEMO. From founders to CEOs, from industry legends to brand young entrepreneurs, SVOD brings together the people who are shaping our lives today and influencing our future.
This year SVOD Conference theme is Nutcracker and Christmas with Santa!
SVOD Winter’13: Meet successful start-up founders and learn from them how to raise funding, work with angels and VCs, and launch a product! Learn about the latest developments in your industry. Hear them talk about what’s important in building your business in the Valley, how to deal with “hard nuts”, come up with pivots and new “fighting” business strategies.
The Land of Snow Startup DEMO: Apply to become one of the 25 cool pre-selected companies, receive training and present in front of the audience of angels and venture capitalists (total of 60+ with the ratio of 2-to-1 entrepreneur-to-investor). The coach will help polish your story, define your strategies, discuss financial goals, and other important issues for the presentation.
Sugar Plum Fairy Game or Business Model Canvas Evaluation for the DEMO startups where each attendee gets an opportunity to be “in the shoes of an investor, evaluating a company”. Compare your approach with the approach of the best Silicon Valley angels and venture capitalists.
The Dreams Land or Social Startups: We introduce a social startup panel with several social startup pitches participating in SVOD DEMO. A social startup is a company that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being.
